will be the united states of america. >> romney made his concession speech before his supporters in boston. the loss ends a six-year quest for the presidency for the former massachusetts governor. he lost the republican nomination to john mccain in 2008. romney wished president obama well, but also noted the deep divide amongst the parties in washington and urged leaders to work together. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. our lead verse to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. >> while the electoral college makes this win look far more decisive than the popular vote, that is just one of the quirks of the u.s. electoral voting system that many people worldwide have been learning about. 303, the number of delegates that he has to romney's 206. despite the very close popular vote, again, the electoral college votes make it much more decisive. florida remains a toss-up. clearly not going to make a difference to the overall outcome. 270, that was the number to reesm we knew once we started to get the
. but this is something to cheer, the people in boston at romney headquarters. >> john, i know you're looking to the screen as well. iowa being projected now for barack obama. >> well, that is a piece of bad news for the romney campaign. again, remember, mitt romney needed to win most of the nine swing states. not just a couple of them. most of them. he's still got to do that. he's not out of the game, but if you take the state of iowa, you got colorado out there, if president obama can hold nevada and the state of colorado, it doesn't matter what happens in any of these other states. he'll be over the finish line. so big challenges, more for president obama, fewer more romney, but he's still in the game. >> waiting on too close to call races which of course have been really critical. ohio being number one. florida, as well. we know now north carolina and, of course, iowa. >> larry, he needs 21 votes. >> yeah. there's a pattern. i mean, let's face it. there's a pattern here. and whether you're romney supporter or not, you got to look at this thing. the pattern spills over into the u.s. senate
soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston is chairman and president of a company. your thoughts on what we know so far. 82 electoral votes for governor romney versus 64 for president obama. what's the mood there at romney headquarters? >> the mood is very good up here. it's very upbeat. there's a great sense of enthusiasm and energy in the room. so far so good. it's obviously going to be a close race, but i still believe that the governor is going to win with at least 300 electoral votes. i think for a sitting president to come into the election without 50% is a tough hurdle for him. the governor has run one hell of a campaign the last six weeks. so we're optimistic. i have learned a long time ago not to count chickens before they hatch but i feel strongly that we've had a good candidate, he's run a wonderful race. we've had a lot of support from a lot of people. and as i said, i'm guard ledly optimistic. i rather have opposition than the other side right now. >> what state are you focused on mostly? we have florida having closed but too close to call. pennsylvania too

"mad money" with jim cramer weeknights. >>> tonight we have shown you how to look for signs of what to do with your portfolio over the long run. because the earnings report and the subsequent conference calls are the crucial thing. here's the deal. they don't have to be shoot first ask questions later experiences. actually the opposite. conference calls are ask questions, ask questions, then ask some more questions. and only then maybe take action. we are asking specifically about what the growth of the earnings per share might be and how expensive that would make the stock versus other stocks in the sector. and maybe other stocks in the market as a whole. usually regarded as being the s & p 500. we want questions answered about gross margins, whether they're going to be increasing. why we have to judge if earnings estimates might be beaten in the future. we are looki
and atmosphere is like in boston for governor romney's campaign headquarters. for that we go to hampton pearson. >> reporter: how are you doing, phil. mitt and ann romney voted a few moments ago here in boston. a bit of an irony. no expert or citizen expects romney to carry massachusetts, his home state. experts say he'll be lucky if he matches 36% that john mccain got four years ago when he ran against barack obama. it's not just the fact that massachusetts is a state that tilts democratic. frankly voters here have similar complaints to what has been heard nationally about the former governor. >> i don't think there's a mystery about mitt romney. i think the united states is learning what we learned here. we're never exactly sure if he means what he says and how long he's going to stick with it. >> reporter: the real action in massachusetts is the dead heat contest for the senate between scott brown, the republican, and elizabeth warren, the democrat. voter turnout could top 70%. some 3 million plus votes being cast in one of the most closely watched senate races in the country that could very
at obama headquarters in chicago. hampton pearson is with the romney team in boston. but phil, we will start with you. >> andrew, good morning. it's only been a couple of hours since president obama gave his victory speech here at mccormick place. and that speech a lot of people were looking at and said did it set at least initially the tone for his second term in office. during the speech, he talked about the country coming together and ending the divisiveness that has been typified by the campaign over the last several months. in particular, he made mention about the deficit and coming together to work on solving the deficit, and more importantly, the republicans and democrats finding some solutions. >> whether i earned your vote or not, i have listened the you. i have learned from you. and you've made me a better president. and with your stories and struggles, i return to the white house more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> president obama will return to the white house later this afternoon. he spent last n
for the mountains. rain in the valleys, rain in boston as well, even toward thursday night. our grip on the east coast, especially the hard-hit areas from sandy, will be over by thursday night. now, here are two models that we look at. this is the american model. i'm also going to show you the european model and what they do with snow. i think once we get into this 3 to 6-inch range, we could actually see additional power outages because this will be a heavy, wet snow. this is the european model, which has a much higher resolution. and may actually be portelling to something more significant. 6 to 12 inches in the poconos up to catskills. i think we'll see additional power outages. not only will we curtail current restoration and power but we may add new outages especially if we get 6 to 12 inches of snow in some areas of pennsylvania and new york. >> unbelievable. >> can you believe it? >> oh, my god. we'll hunker down and get ready. thank you so much. we'll be watching the weather channel and certainly come back to you on cnbc. jim cantore. >>> gas lines up to three hours long in some parts of
familiar wind, up to 60-mile-an-hour gusts, anywhere from atlantic city northeastward to boston, but mostly on eastern long island, cape cod and the islands. that would be nantucket and martha's vineyard. so it is mostly a coastal influence when it comes to the wind and certainly not as bad as sandy, but there's also coastal flooding a possibility, minor tide tomorrow afternoon and the big wildcard i'm referring to a brief mix with heavy, wet snow which may bring renewed power outages even to the new york metro area tomorrow late afternoon and tomorrow night. so we will be taking a look at that as the day progresses. now, a chance of snow involved as well. >> todd gross, thank you very much. >>> and with much of new jersey still suffering in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, where and how to vote could be an issue for lots of people. my polling place was moved. kayla tausche is tracking that in the garden state. >> reporter: getting people to the polls is a major task here in the storm-ravaged state with hundreds in shelters hundreds of thousands still without power. an original plan to hav
from the jersey shore through long island. serious coastal flooding south of boston and down toward cape cod. what about the snow? there's a cold pool of air over southeastern new york into northeastern pennsylvania that will get sucked down toward the new york metropolitan area this afternoon. that's where the big wild card is. we know several inches of wet snow will pile up somewhere in new jersey up through southeastern new york to the northwest of new york city. what about the city itself and western long island, southwest connecticut, where the trees have leaves on them. why is that so important? we're just recovering in that vicinity from the power outages now. when trees get leaves and snow falls on those leaves, it brings downed branches and starts a new round of power outages all over again. we'll know much more in the next couple of hours as precipitation first moves in and we'll play it throughout the afternoon step by step to see how it's going to pan out. >> all right. thank you so much for that. todd gross back at headquarters. today is back to lining up defensive play
disappointed when i went to work for the mayor of boston 45 years ago, i was told seriously, hey, kid, there's one thing you you got to remember. you never write when you can talk, you never talk when you can nod, and you neff nod when you can wink. and why these two very intelligent men were sending these embarrassing e-mails is absolutely baffling. >> a lesson for all of us to remember. so remember to wink nod and -- >> is he right, is there anything more than to this than just the exposure of a public figure's sex life? >> the question is whether there were see credit s secrets exposed. >> it's maybe not so much about the affair about the issues this benghazi that were raised and who whole other series and the loss of support. it's a pretty interesting piece worth reading. >> futures are indicated higher after the markets closed down again. indicated up about 34. in europe this morning, we've been taking a look and seeing at this point at least some modest red arrows. declines of the ftse at this point down by about 19 points. cac off by five. germany, the dax down by half a percent. an
on election day. >> and we'll also head out to boston to find out what one strategist says the election will mean for wall street. no more debates, no more rallies, at least for, what, two weeks. president obama and mitt romney will leave their fate in the hands of u.s. voters today after a long and bitter campaign battle. national polls show obama and romney in a dead heat. although the president seems to have an edge in ohio. and tracie potts joins us live from cincinnati, ohio in the wee hours of the morning there. when do polls open, how important is ohio, and when will we start to get a sense of the outcome? >> reporter: the polls here in ohio open at 6:30 eastern time. so we have about 2 1/2 hours. this is one of the polling places, a local church here behind me. however important is ohio? for months we've been talking about ohio really sort of being a bellwether state, ohio being the most important battleground state. and that's because ohio has a history of choosing presidents, particularly cincinnati where i am, it's been described as really the biggest swing part of one of the
